Motto:" Fight The Good Fight"

Joseph Kaneka Kanu, President of the Sierra Leone Thai Boxing Association, began his martial arts career while he was in elementary school in the arts of Karate-Do, Tae Kwon Do, Judo, Aikido and Kickboxing. He  said " I solely depend on martial arts, training under stress, pain and hunger without knowing international contacts."  War had begun since he had finished his High school education and there were no jobs for him. So he has dedicated his life in the sport of Muay Thai Boxing.
